Project Corner - Folder Organizer

Hi everyone! I know that with the holidays and everything leading up to it that I've been slacking on keeping up with things around here. I'm trying my best to get everything back on track and am open to suggestions if y'all are wanting to see something in particular. ;)

Before we get to today's post, I have some fun news to tell you, I've been accepted to another design team!! I just can't believe it...I'm over the top excited! Now this isn't like The Shabby Tea Room, it's not a challenge blog with random sponsors. I'm on the design team for an actual company...Creations By AR. I was introduced to this company through The Shabby Tea Room and quickly fell in love with creating projects using Adela's easy to use templates. When she put out a call for design team members I was quick to apply!! My official first post will be on January 21st, 2014, but I thought I'd whip up a fun little project to introduce y'all to Creations By AR and to tell you about my good news.

With the new year starting many of us are trying to organize our lives and our junk so I thought a little organizational help was in order! If you're like me, you have a TON of the little dry embossing folders. They're pretty inexpensive and adorable so I end up picking a new one up quite often...then when I get home I have to find a place for it, sigh!! Problem solved - It's called a "Folder Organizer" and will hold a total of 30 dry embossing folders!!!
Cute, right? Recognize those polka dots?? Yup, my all time favorite DeNami stamp...polka dot background! After cutting my pieces I used a Versa Mark stamp pad to add yummy polka dots! The patterned paper trim pieces are all optional. There are also a few options for the base...including a darling little banner!! The skys the limit in detailing this set out, you can dress this little set up any way you want! The pink on the spines and the punched edge on the base along with all the ribbon trim are my ideas.

Now don't go thinking this is complicated, it's really not, I promise!! When you download the file it will have several versions; SVG, PDF & STUDIO along with detailed instructions in a PDF....
The instructions are pretty detailed and even have the number of sheets of paper you'll need along with the finished dimensions. If you don't have a cutting machine then you simply print out the PDF version and use the template to cut your patterned paper/cardstock. If you're using a cutting machine the instructions give you the measurements that you'll need to cut each piece. I really love that there are plenty of pictures along the way so that I can compare mine to theirs!!

Well, that's it for me today. I hope you enjoyed my little project and seriously, it was EASY. I'll see you back here on Sunday for the DeNami Design Valentine blog hop!!! :)
